Rented by: The League of Staves
Evil. Cruelty. Death. Darkness. Cool accessories.
Mumm-Ra formed The League of Staves with Horde Prime and Nekron after realizing the Earth was in dire need of evil overlords carrying cool sticks. And that Apartment 12A had two spare bedrooms and Mumm-Ra was in need of cash and companionship. His Thundercats money had dried up as soon as Cartoon Network turned their interest in their latest Batman show that was cancelled after a year and it was finally time to let non-cats and invisible friends join him in his abode of darkness.
The fact that they all have awesome staves simply meant that this partnership was a match made in heaven. Or whatever the action figure villain equivalent of heaven is. Maybe, just maybe, it’s here.
It’s not easy trying to bunk with the personification of death and the embodiment of all that is evil in Eternia who both have better articulation than Mumm-Ra, but the league does its best to make the best of a situation. Who knew Nekron had an odd taste in carpeting? The design evokes a Mayan heritage, sewn by thousands of tortured Goblins over the course of seven years. Being forced to listen to nothing but “Now That’s What I Call Music volume 26” nonstop will produce some wild designs. These rugs go for several hundred dollars, but not since Nekron ate their souls after stealing this one. Gotta keep his urges in check you know.
Horde Prime contributes his share of the rent by sharing his stash of candied souls, this batch taking the form of cherry Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls. They have contests every Thursday to see how many they can fit in their mouth. Horde Prime keeps winning, Nekron resents him so much for it.
Sure, they have other evil friends. Megatron, Skeletor, Lex Luthor, Thanos, Cobra Commander, Congressman Rand Paul, even a few Daleks. But they couldn’t afford the sweet digs. They all come over to hang out every once in a while, though and play Apples to Apples while discussing which 90’s boy band was the cutest. There’s a surprising number of votes towards 98 Degrees for some reason.
Tonight, though, is when the league sits back and watches The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. After the power hour of Daily Show and the Colbert Report, they’ll soon plan their assault to conquer the other apartments. Cable’s not included in 12A.
